The three players the New York Giants added from their practice squad this week -- wide receiver Ben Edwards, defensive end Brad Bars and tight end Matt LaCosse -- will all be active Sunday night when the Giants face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football.
As expected, safety Cooper Taylor (concussion) and linebacker Devon Kennard (foot) will not play. Other inactive are wide receiver Geremy Davis, offensive linemen Emmett Cleary and Adam Gettis, cornerback Jayron Hosley and defensive end Stansley Maponga.
Edwards is active instead of Davis, a sixth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. That is perhaps a telling sign in regards to what the coaching staff feels about Davis' progress.
Kennard has now missed three straight games and played in only nine this season. The second-year linebacker also missed four games a season ago.
Taylor had begun to receive more playing time before suffering a concussion last week against the Carolina Panthers.
The Giants will also be without the suspended Odell Beckham Jr. Hakeem Nicks will start in place of Beckham.
